Dining Room Revisited

Cottage and Vine's Room by Room Party 
this month is Dining Rooms.
You've seen mine before but I hope you don't mind 
seeing it again.
Actually, we don't really have a dining room ~
 this is our eating area for all occasions so I didn't think
Rene would mind if I joined her party with this space.  
(She's nice like that!)  

We have a leaf for the table for when we have a larger group so 
I will definitely be adding it for Thanksgiving.

See my little table back in the corner that I posted about here?
I still really love it!

We have this fireplace across from our table 
and I've always had trouble accessorizing the shallow mantle.
I came up with the idea to display some of my China on it.

I just kind of layered some dishes and added a
 few other things I had to dress it up.
How do you think it turned out?

I'm so happy you stopped by for a visit!

~ I hope your week is getting off to a good start ~
